Ultimate Collector Series LEGO BATMAN Tumbler and STAR WARS Slave I Possibly Arriving This Summer

In 2000, LEGO began its “Ultimate Collector’s Series”, which are large, expensive sets that are more detailed and aimed at older fans.  For example, a casual fan might buy this LEGO Star Wars X-Wing Starfighter.  It’s $50 and has 560 pieces.  The hardcore fan goes in for the LEGO Star Wars 10240 Red Five X-Wing Starfighter Building Set, which costs $200, has 1558 pieces, measures over 10″ (26cm) high, 20″ (52cm) long, 18″ (46cm) wide, and comes with a display stand and data sheet.

Hardcore collectors will be pleased to hear that the Ultimate Collector’s Series might be adding the LEGO Batman Tumbler and Boba Fett’s Slave I this summer.  Hit the jump for more.

According to The Brick Fan, LEGO will likely reveal the Ultimate Collector’s Series Batman Tumbler at San Diego Comic-Con in July.  Additionally, Brickpicker reports that the set will retail for $199.99.  If this is too rich for your blood, there’s currently a minibag LEGOTumbler that will set you back $8.75.  Live the dream.

Additionally, The Brick Fan also reports that UCS is adding Boba Fett’s Slave I, which “will include a brand new Boba Fett minifigure. The model of the Slave I will be similar in size of the new Imperial Star Destroyer (75055).”  For those curious about what that means, the UCS Imperial Star Destroyer is 50 inches long and weighs nearly 8 pounds.  Brickpicker says the new UCS Slave I will also retail for $199.

It’s worth noting that neither one of these sets has been officially confirmed, but I’m sure they’ll sell like crazy if/when they’re announced.  Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to gaze wistfully at this UCS Sandcrawler:
